magit process hangs on push #590

I read over #18 but it's pretty old and even the problem is similar, i'm not sure if it's the same since i'm running Emacs 24.2.1 (2013-01-27), and that previous ticket is 3 years old.

When i try to push, the process shows the prompt for the username but i cannot enter my credentials. I.e.:

$ git --no-pager push -v origin master:refs/heads/master
Pushing to

PS: i will try to debug when i get some free time. Meanwhile, i'll just peek back on this ticket and answer any other participants' questions.


This is unrelated to #18.

You cannot enter the username because magit just does not support it. It would be hard to implement.

You should use public-key authentication and make sure ssh-agent is running.

I just checked again, and it appears that magit should actually support this.

Thanks, that said, i'm not having the issue anymore... but i'm using multiple machines and have been on a mac lately. I'll try again on my windows when i get a chance.


Closing. Feel free to reopen if the problem comes back.
